Having seen a replica of the carriage in which the armistice was signed on 11/11/1918, we are en route back to England. This has been a fantastic Battlefields tour for all involved!
Good morning! We have a early morning departure from our hotel in Albert, as we are heading to Compiègne to learn about the last year of WW1 and the Armistice on 11/11/1918. Extremely excited for this stop!
This afternoon, students visited Thiepval, where they laid a cross of remembrance for Corporal Francis Wilson Skilbeck, from Acomb. After dinner, they compared British Army equipment in 1914 to 2019, and had the opportunity to try both sets on! It has been a fantastic 3 days https://t.co/fp9RcME2a5
Busy day so far involving travelling to France, seeing the location of the Lancaster Fusiliers' attack on 1/7/1916 on the Somme, Newfoundland Park (including real trenches), the Gibraltar Bunker and the Lochnagar Mine Crater. We've had some fabulous questions from YH students! https://t.co/c08zNaUB1e
